Picturing a PARK(ing) day


ALAN BERNER / THE SEATTLE TIMES

Three-year-old Lucian Thach glances back at mom Ana as he works on his abstract piece with his hand-on-canvas in the parking lane on the north side of University Street next to the Seattle Art Museum on Friday. The parking spaces were covered with artificial grass for PARK(ing) Day, an annual event throughout the city where people make parking spaces into "parks" for the day. The Seattle Department of Transportation has approved 45 "parks."

Ana Thach covers son Lucian's hand with tempura paints so he can work the canvas with his hand as he produced an abstract expressionist piece Friday.

Jenny Farmer and Michael Austin with Makers Architecture, a local planning and design firm, arrange various-sized balls in a parking space on Occidental Avenue South, part of the Seattle Design Festival taking place at the same time as PARK(ing) Day, except these pieces will be up until Sunday afternoon in Pioneer Square. PARK(ing) Day is a one-day, Friday-only event.
